i dont think you would have a problem with your specs.. may be a little jumpy every now and then, but for the most part, it would be fine

Well the reason i ask is that the PMDG is terrible, v v jerky in VC mode and not flyable especially around KLAX.

Hmmm.. I dont have a problem. Its always flyable for me. The lowest i dip is around 15 or 16FPS and thats at a major airport with heavy traffic. 85% of the time im 23FPS+The 2100 precessor may be why though. FS is very dependent on the cpu. Everything looks fine on your system, but if you want to, get the 3200+ or higher if you can. All you should really have to do i think if you run on the 754 socket, is just get the processor and pop it in. Not shure, but i think thats really all there is to it. Check out the 3200+ or higher if you come to that bridge soon.

I'm in awe myself. This is truly a work of art. I have never seen an add-on where all the lights work as their supposed to. The 'Logo' light switch actually turns on the tail logo light, 'Runway Turnoff Switches' actually turn on/off the runway turn off switches etc.Sounds are amazing period. I know some are going to complain why they get to 32,000ft and only hear wind noise but that's the beauty of this package... :-hah All the rest of the features goes without saying. I haven't had the chance yet to test them all to comment...

It's really really good. Low on Sid/Stars at the moment, but airways work wonderfully. Neat and different sounds than I'm used to - Love hearing that gear retract. Just really really good - I think I'm in love.__Josh

It's been pretty well said already, but WOW! This add on is a must, especially if you're a fan of the original 767 PIC. A little steep at $40.00, but IMO, worth the price. Just as detailed as it's predecessor, visually much much more, and running smooth as silk. Lovin it!!!The only complaint I have, and this in no way deters from it's systems modeling and flight characteristics - the manual states that there is a virtual flt attendant, and I have confirmed in the Level-D preference settings that she exists: As of yet, I have yet to hear a single word from Ana in the back.

Oh yeah, the flight attendants exist. Um, mine reported that the oxygen masks deployed. You, know, playing with the pacs. :)

Posts on another forum are equally enthusiastic but there was mention that there were "no liveries" which I assume means only one livery and that there is no "flight manual" only a systems manual.There were suggestions about where to go to get tutorials etc.I am not a BIG IRON guy and would have no clue about how to fly such a big ship without a pretty thorough tutorial.Assuming I could get guidance from the Level D website I registered for their Forum but unless one buys the product, they are denied access to the support forum.I would be very cautious about buying an add-on when I couldn't go to their support forum to read about any glitches that might exits...especially with a brand new product.I, for one, will wait awhile and watch posts on the non-Level D forums to see how it all goes.Just my 2C.Jim

I'm running it on an Athlon XP 2,200 with an nvidia Gforce Ti 4200, 1 gig ram. Framerates are comparable to PMDG 737, perhaps a little better. However, the 767 doesn't have a virtual cabin, so that might be an explanation. The manual doesn't have a tutorial flight, only a checklist. I didn't find those to helpful, but, after some problems, got the engines running and was able to clear all the warning messages. There are already a substantial number of liveries available. I'm having some problems with the airplane following vnav, but that might be pilot error. There are a couple of old tutorials from PIC767 for FS2000 available. Overall, I am very satisfied. ricardo

Found the liveries at the following link - http://www.leveldsim.com/files/repaints/Quite a few: 25-30 or so in two formats apiece. Funny thing was that there was no direct link from the site's main page - had to go to the forums.Just downloaded and installed Delta, Varig, and Hawaiian. Dang, I love this sucker! :D

HI!I also bought it ~10h ago and I want to share impressions for possible new customers:There are currently some more issues with this aircraft than what I expected:-there are problems with the AP overshooting altitudes in alt hold mode, especially when G/S is armed or in FL/CHG (not at mine, but there are soem posts in the level D forums from some users)-there are also problems with the AP during autoland with crosswind (which is set in the limits for autoland) where the aircraft touches down off the rwy-I had a problem with the AP not following an LNAV offset (started turn to enter offset, but then remained in that turn orbiting). I also had troubles with altidue holding in cruise (annoying to see VNAV SPD and PTH change all the time ;-) )-there are issues with the AP/ATHR not considering user entered speeds in the FMC (legs page) In my case, the FMC entered holding speed of 220kts was not considered at all and the AP/ATHR decided to keep his desired SPD... *g*-the displays can not be un-docked, I think(! not sure on this)...............-the displays are wonderfull - smooth, readable, the best VC in my opinion (carefull: no virtual cabin though and the FMC has to be used from a 2d window)-the interaction with co-pilot, ground and flight-attendants is also fantastic (just had the MID and AFT attendant station call me because I set the temp to 30

Why should I?Never liked the 767, it's my least favourite Boeing.And having just purchased the PSS Concorde I'm busy learning the lawndart anyway (just had my first successfull landing, after trying about half a dozen times).

Stephan,You should check the LDS technical forums as many of the issues to are having are related to conflicts with other programs such as FSINN.Mark.

Hi Marck,don't have FSINN, don't have any special wx-programms, don't use any special stuff (2nd monitor, external MCP),I got the 3.45 FSUIPC (quite current) and don't have problems with any other add-ons.Stefan

Guys,I purchased PIC1 just a short time before FS9 was released and never really got into it because I had very little experience with heavies or complex add-ons at that time. After getting FS9 I got very deep into the complex add-ons when the PMDG737 was released and purchased everything out there since then including RFP2, the Flight1 ATR, Flight1 727 etc. They are all fantastic products but you have raised the bar even more. I just flew my first short flight (KATL-KMIA) to see how things went. Other than the very slight problem with the GS capture that has already been addressed, this thing was PERFECT! I have been studying the manual since you released the beta version so I felt very "at home" in it and was able to program the FMC, etc without a hitch. From the incredibly detailed systems, to the flex wings, to the flight model, lighting, visual model, etc. You have done an unbelievable job. My congratulations to the developers, publishers and last, but certainly not least, the beta testers, for which I know from personal experience were instrumental in producing as near to a perfect initial release as I have ever seen.Thanks again,

Absence of a virtual cabin disappointing. While I guess that isn't going to mean much to the purists, it is one feature I do like about the PMDG 737NG. This will probably make me hesitate a bit before getting out the credit card yet again.Bruceb

I like cabins too (at least the option to use one) but I am really very pleased that Level D decided to add a pair of wings to the virtual cockpit. I wasn't sure that they were planning to do this but they did. :-)With the virtual wings included, which seem to be fully operable (moving flaps, spoilers, etc.) btw, I can use active camera to set up some cool, preset wing views. I particulary enjoy wing views during replay, when often I just want to sit back and just enjoy the flight and the scenery from interesting perspectives such as wing view.So, at least the included VC wings give you a good perspective "as if" you were in a cabin. Plus, they have very little impact on frame rate, unlike a full virtual cabin. :-)
